We are bringing back the food packing project in 2018! This year we will once again be partnering with the organization Kids Around The World to pack a 100,000 meals during the District’s conference.

We are also excited to announce that the food packs will be benefiting an organization called UPstream International and their work in the nation of Haiti. Upstream is a mission organization that provides assistance to people and communities in need and empowers them to become sustainable, independent and proud. They are uniquely positioned to use these food packs to help strategically love and support the communities in Haiti. Check them out at upstreamint.org
